Digne played with Salah at Roma during the the 2015-16 season when the Frenchman was on loan at the Serie A side from Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool remain 11 points ahead of Everton and haven't lost to the Toffees since 2010, but their slump has come just as their local rivals have put together their best run of the campaign. That was a good result because we backed it up by winning the next game against Cardiff.

"Come on, it's a derby, we don't have to show a reaction".

Plus, it's only one game.

It feels as though Klopp's more cautious approach both domestically and in Europe has worked in the Premier League, which is more of a long-haul, but in the sprint to get out of the Champions League group it seems to have been a flawed approach.

"We've seen plenty of clips of Liverpool and they're a very good side, they have a high tempo, lots of energy and we have to make sure that we're on top of our game for a tough test".

Marco Silva believes the Merseyside derby has "the power" to propel Everton's development and his players should not fear Sunday's visit to Liverpool.

"Football is like this and we need to change the past".

The African soccer body gave Cameroon a final chance by planning two more inspection visits in October. CAN 2019 will boast the participation of 24 national teams, up from the usual 16.

"That's what we want to use, and of course the crowd as well, Anfield as well".

"Liverpool play well now, but we play well too".

"He gives 100 per cent every day on the training ground and it is easy to understand how he can work as well during the match". We have conceded five goals [in the Premier League] and you talk about our midfield being overrun.

"We went to Chelsea to win and proved we can win. A good result for us could boost our confidence to a high, high level".

"We want to play against them week by week and be competitive".

In fact, Liverpool have not lost to their crosstown rivals at Anfield in nearly two decades.

The 25-year-old stressed that he and his Everton teammates will be unmoved by the reception from Liverpool supporters on Sunday. Really, with all the things I saw in this country football-wise, if people cannot enjoy our football then I really can't help them.

"I know my heart is blue and the Everton fans are with us all the time".
